Within the heart of the Cotswolds countryside is a startling gem. You will find the spa, (with indoor and outdoor heated pool), that Conde Nast voted as one of the UK’s finest, a grand restaurant, 55 acres of Grade II listed gardens and spacious rooms. Oh….and the view…. is straight out of a Jane Austen novel. A sumptuously green park punctuated by enormous chestnuts an ornate lake and a neo classical water feature. Yet it’s the funky, clever, fun and simply wonderful contemporary design that surprises at every turn.
